Crepe Paper Cracker

Send guests home with snacks and sweets in eye-catching wrappings. Create a pistachio-filled crepe paper cracker or a lollipop posy in a few quick steps. Other cute ideas: a dragee-stuffed envelope made from floral paper and sealed with a monogram, and a stamped box, with a ribbon pull, containing hard candies.

How to Make It
Crepe Paper Cracker: For the inner layer, make lengthwise accordion folds in 10-by-4-inch lightweight pink crepe paper; cut fringe on ends. For outer layer: Fold 12-by-8 1/2-inch heavyweight red crepe paper in half lengthwise. Cut ends into petal shapes (download our template). Center pink paper on red; place 4 1/2-inch-long cardboard tube on top. Roll papers tightly around the tube, affixing with double-sided tape. Tie one end with a raffia bow. Use a paper funnel to fill tube with pistachios; tie the other end. Fluff petals and fringe.

    I am doing the cracker favors for my June wedding. We are filling them with a sanddollar but need other ideas. We don't want them to be empty but need something inexpensive. It is Florida so we can't have any candy. Please email The date is 6-7-8 if that is any help.

    How about hard candy "wrapped". or purchase "jewels" big and small, different colors, etc. Think outside of the box.

    Congrats and I know you will have a beautiful wedding. My Grandson is getting married June 6, 2015 in San Diego, Ca. Hope you both have a beautiful day for your weddings.
